Netflix has announced new profile photos for the platform on Wednesday (25). Users can now illustrate the icons with faces from the characters from the most famous series and movies in the stream, such as La Casa de Papel, Orange is The New Black, Stranger Things and Defenders of Marvel. Previous figures, such as the police, superhero and penguin, have been redesigned and modernized with new colors and more detailed features. In all, over 100 new icons are available for use.
Netflix profiles were created in 2013 to make the user experience more personalized, allowing multiple people to use the same service account without interfering with the content being watched by others. The move will be available in the coming weeks for all users on the site, on mobile devices and in Smart TV applications. Check out the following tutorial how to use the new Netflix profile photos from your computer.
